That sucks being backed into a corner and having no way out.  It seems like nowadays we have to look at each machine we want and go through and see if all parts are still available.  Of course that availability could change over night.  I hope you guys make out OK.

It has always amazed me how all electronic devices run on smoke. Once the smoke leaks out, it is all over. Can you at least get a schematic for the unit to see what it would take to create a new control scheme. :)

They got that covered today...

If a machine in a rough environment is going to depend on a magic black box, the components of that box should, at least, be mil spec. Its inputs and outputs should be protected, too. The printed circuit board traces and ICs shouldn't have to act as fuses. (The real world doesn't always confine itself to the limits of the drawings and imaginings of the geek engineer at his or her desk).

Did you figure out what melted it in the first place?
Find something to do that interests you.

Finally got the box from over the border! A little nervous about plugging it in... Should I use some sort of electrical grease on the connections or just leave them bare like they were? There's 5 plugs total on this thing...

The electrical grease should help keep out moister in the plugs

Some dielectric grease will definitely not hurt anything.  Glad to see you're on your way!
